AKA Rhino Ray passed on April 13, 2018 in Kamloops following an emergency surgery.  After 3 years of struggling his body finally succumbed.  But just like Ray, he was alert, aware and ready to meet the new challenges ahead.  With a peaceful smile on his face, he passed away in his sleep, now free from all suffering.
He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Judy, his son Philip (Liz), grandchildren: Keith and Emily, 3 brothers: Roy, Len (Gail), Adrien (Sherry) 5 sisters:  Aldine (Alyre), Lilly, Cecile (Dave), Anne (Lou), Diane (Randy) and many Eastern nieces and nephews.
He shared a special closeness to his BC nieces: Kim, Jamie-Lee (Sebastien), Dunnell (Mat) and nephew Steven (Krsytyna), a very special BC fishing “Buddy Blaine”, and many wonderful friends.
He is predeceased by his brothers: Louis and Julien and his three children: Kevin, Keith and Karen.
In lieu of flowers, Ray asked that donations be sent to the Royal Inland Hospital Vascular Surgical Dept.

 

Escott, Marie-Paule

April 7, 1941 – April 10, 2018
at the age of 77 years.

Marie-Paule passed away peacefully surrounded by her family.  Marie-Paule is survived by her beloved husband Ken Gordon Escott, stepson Chris (Lindsay), grandsons Owen and Kyle, stepdaughter Laurie, granddaughter Justine, sister in law Kathleen Prince (Hayward) Winnipeg, brother in law Harry Escott (Oresia) Brossard, sisters France St Louis Brown (Doug) Blind Bay and Rachel Chevrier (Raymond) Ottawa and brother Regent St Louis (Julie )Brossard. 
Marie-Paule had a great career as a Flight Attendant & Customer Service Director with Pacific Western and Canadian Airlines.  Everyone loved flying with Marie-Paule, you were always in for a good day.  Unfortunately ill health took her away from her passion.  Even at the retirement home she would be gracious to other residents and offer help.  The staff used to say you can always see the Flight Attendant in Marie-Paule. Marie & Ken retired to Kelowna and when it got too cold in December they would leave for Honolulu. 
Marie-Paule requested no service and in lieu of flowers donations to the SPCA would be appreciated.
